Oct 31 2018 | Stanford News
Minuscule nanostraws could help solve the problem of how to deliver precise doses of molecules directly into many cells at once.
Oct 25 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Understanding when and where proteins bind to DNA may be the ticket to identifying cancer at the cellular level, according to researchers at Stanford.
Oct 25 2018 | Stanford Chemistry
ChEM-H Baker Family Co-Director Carolyn Bertozzi and ChEM-H Institute Scholar Laura Dassama discuss the intersection of science and social media. Keep up with Stanford ChEM-H on Twitter: @Stanford_ChEMH.
Oct 24 2018 | Stanford Engineering
Spatial organization in the nucleus of a cell governs cell function. Knowing this, researchers explore how moving genetic material from one area to another could impact health.
Oct 15 2018 | Stanford News
Watching the movement of every cell in an adult animal all at once, the Prakash lab discovered ultra-fast cellular contractions. This research suggests a new role for cellular contractions in tissue cohesion, which could be the basis of a new material.
Oct 15 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A computational tool designed by ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Ami Bhatt and colleagues makes it easier to identify the source of bloodstream infections and, ideally, rid patients of reservoirs where potentially troublesome microbes reside.
Oct 11 2018 | Stanford ChEM-H
Faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and researchers in her group have created a stretchable, conductive material that could be used to integrate electronics with squishy biological tissue.
Oct 11 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Using a new variation of gene-editing technology CRISPR, Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi and colleagues were able to change the spatial organization of DNA in cell nuclei and show how physical relocation altered cell function.
Oct 8 2018 | Stanford News
Stanford researchers have found that malignant breast cancer cells can extend protrusions known as invadopodia to dig escape tunnels through surrounding tissue, revealing a possible new target for therapies.
Learn more about all that Stanford ChEM-H and Baker Family Co-Director Carolyn Bertozzi are doing to connect basic scientists, engineers, and clinicians to advance human health.
Oct 2 2018 | Stanford Medicine
The Stanford scientists will receive $32 million over five years to fund explorations of cancer, the brain, the aging process, chromosomes and the development of cells.
Sep 27 2018 | Stanford News
As chemist Carolyn Bertozzi takes on a new role as Baker Family Co-Director, Stanford ChEM-H, she talks about bridging gaps between chemistry research and medical practice and preparing graduate students for the future.
Sep 26 2018 | Stanford News
Seventeen Stanford faculty are part of new Bay Area-wide collaborative research teams funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, co-directed by Stephen Quake.
Sep 25 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellows Paul Wender and Robert Waymouth are training the body's immune cells to seek out and fight cancer.
Sep 20 2018 | Stanford ChEM-H
For us, figuring out how hard something is requires only a simple touch. From the stiff surface of a stone to the fluffy delight of snow – we effortlessly measure objects’ tautness every day. But for scientists, figuring out the mechanical properties of an object, such as how stiff or soft...
Sep 20 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Identification of the human skeletal stem cell by Stanford scientists could pave the way for regenerative treatments for bone fractures, arthritis and joint injuries.
Sep 18 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Two graduate students and their respective advisers, ChEM-H faculty fellows Christina Smolke and John Boothroyd, were awarded grants for scientific leadership and dedication to diversity and inclusion in the sciences.
Stanford scientists have shown that cellulose serves a mortar-like role to enhance the adhesion of bacteria to bladder cells, causing urinary tract infections.
Sep 10 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Researchers aim to harness microbes in our intestines to cure what ails us
Aug 21 2018 | SLAC
This summer, five graduate students from the University of Puerto Rico had the opportunity to use SLAC’s world-class facilities to keep their studies on track.
